B&B accommodation on route

Creature comforts

joberg2c provides a fully-supported race and amazing race villages. You’ll have your own tent if you’re riding solo, or you’ll share with your teammate. All you need to bring is a pillow and a sleeping bag.

However we know that some will make use of the many B&B’s along the way. If you do decide to plan some of your own logistics, please understand we are unable to cater for supporters in the race villages.

Frankfort - Day 1 - 24 April 2020

Frankfort is a small farming town situated on the banks of the Wilge River in the Free State. The town was laid out in 1869 on the farm Roodepoort, and named Frankfurt (after Frankfurt-am-Main in Germany) by Albert van Gordon. The town later received municipality status in 1896. Frankfort is the capital town to Villiers, Cornelia and Tweeling, called the Mafube Municipality. The main street is ‘Brand Street’, named after the 4th president of the Orange Free State, Sir Johannes Brand. During 1883, he visited the town and laid the cornerstone of the Dutch Reformed Church. This church was burnt down by British troops during the Anglo-Boer War. After the war it was rebuilt and inaugurated in 1918.

Reitz - Day 2 - 25 April 2020

Founded in 1889 the town was previously known as Singer’s Post; its name was changed to Amsterdam, and again to its current name Reitz after the Orange Free State president, Francis William Reitz. Lying almost halfway between Bethlehem and Frankfort on Route 26 in the Free State, Reitz is a quaint little town that maintains a relatively low profile, other than the Bielie Mielie Festival in February, which is a festival celebrating mealies in thr predominantly maize-farming community – the town has one of the largest maize silos in the southern hemisphere and is a major maize growing community.

Sterkfontein Dam - Day 3 - 26 April 2020

The dam receives its water via the Tugela-Vaal Project which is a pumped-storage scheme involving the net transfer of up to 630 000 000m3 of water from KwaZulu-Natal. This is stored in the Sterkfontein Dam and released to the Vaal Dam via the Wilge River when needed. The Sterkfontein Dam is a highly effective reservoir, since it has the depth to store a large amount of water, with very little loss to evaporation. The dam wall contains 17 000 000m3 of material, making it the largest dam wall in South Africa with regard to volume, while the reservoir formed by the dam is the third largest in the country.

Nottingham Rd - Day 5 - 28 April 2020

Nottingham Road is known as the ‘heart’ of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Meander due to its outstanding hospitality, truly beautiful surroundings, fascinating local events and activities, invigorating outdoor recreation, historic landmarks and wildlife conservation. The picturesque, ordered beauty and attractions of Nottingham Road’s extensive farmlands remain deeply rooted in antiquity. Quaint country taverns and a network of luxurious holiday accommodation proudly perpetuate the district’s century-and-a-half-old, hallmark tradition of gracious living. Equestrian pursuits of a more genteel nature, including polo and mock fox-hunting, are these days a great attraction, and we boast the country’s most popular annual showcase of expertise in the saddle. Trout fishing is yet another of our magnetic charms to have made front page in history, enticing lovers of the ‘gentle art’ to these well-stocked waters since 1884.

Glencairn Farm near Himeville - Day 6 - 29 April 2020

Underberg is an administrative town in a dairy and cattle farming community in the Mzimkulu River valley of KwaZulu-Natal. It is situated at the foot of the 1 904m Hlogoma Peak (place of echoes) in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal. Underberg was established in 1917 when the railway from Pietermaritzburg reached the area. It is an important commercial centre for the region’s farming industry providing many of the support services. It is also a trading point for people who come down the nearby Sani Pass from Lesotho. The Underberg district is also, along with Dullstroom, Mpumalanga, one of South Africa’s premier fly-fishing destinations. Splashy Fen, an annual outdoor music festival, is held on a farm near Underberg. The internationally acclaimed Sani2c Mountain Bike race starts in Underberg, and paddlers from far and wide gather annually for the Drak Challenge canoe race held on the Mzimkulu river.

MacKenzie Club and Jolivet - Day 7 & 8 - 30 April and 1 May 2020

The club is a place for farmers and their families to socialise and thanks to mountain biking we have been able to uplift our facilities, as well as raise money for schools and charities, in desperate need of funds. The MacKenzie Club race village is a collaboration of people coming together to show what can be done when people work together. Jolivet is a combination of farming communities and rural communities, living side by side, in a bustling trading environment. Situated near the town of Highflats there are always taxi’s, logging trucks and delivery trucks carrying their goods to wholesalers, depots and other outlets.
